About Jack

 My path to higher education was not traditional. I wasn’t interested in college when I graduated from High School, so I pursued a career in the United States Navy. After finishing my military education, I became a Machinest’s Mate specializing in Nuclear. Unfortunately, this career choice was short lived. In 1992, I was discharged with a service connected disability. There were no transition programs available. I was essentially given the address to the local Veterans Affairs office and sent on my way. I worked a series of entry level jobs, mostly in food service, moving to Las Vegas on October 21, 1993. Fast forward two years, I was accepted into an Apprenticeship Program for Drywall Finishing, Painting and Decorating. After working in the Finishing Industry as an Apprentice, Journeyman and Foreman, helping to build a number of Southern Nevada’s resorts, an expansion at the Airport, hospitals and other infrastructure projects, I went to work for the Union that I joined when I began. For the last 15 years, I’ve done a number of different things, from negotiating contracts, administering disputes, and advocating for working people at all levels of government. Developing policies, budgets and programs has been a passion of mine. As a Trustee for the Finishing Trades Institute of the Southwest, a non-profit provider of accredited post-secondary education, I have been able to give back to the industry that trained me. I’ve watched young people transition from poverty to entry into the middle class.  

Education is the gateway to the Middle Class

Unfortunately, for many low income Nevadans, College affordability is the gate and not the way. We need to be innovative in the way that we approach the cost of higher education. Whether it is use of partnerships with the private sector, expanding the use of web based core programs or utilization of donations and grants, something has to be done that grants access to a larger cross section of Nevadans.

Education is more than just College. We need to do a better job in offering alternatives in public education that attract good paying jobs to Nevada. Not everyone is going to pursue careers that require a college degree, however, expanding non-degree vocational and occupation based training programs for existing and future professions will create dividends. 

We can't do everything ourselves

Partnerships with community organizations, businesses and industries can and should be a component of the evolution of post-secondary education.
